‘First and foremost, this is a YMCA’

Everything you need to know about the proposed YMCA





The YMCA would be managed by the YMCA Board of Directors; but for the purpose of running the events center, Gaudreau has suggested the city council establish a management committee that could be made up of representatives from organizations throughout the county.

Gaudreau has discussed the makeup of the management committee with the city, the YMCA Board of Directors and GISD, but the details regarding the membership and responsibilities of the committee have not been determined. The management committee would be in charge of bringing events to the YMCA.

“I have a person that puts on events at the Y, and she does a really good job, but bringing events is not my forte,” Gaudreau said.

The YMCA has done research that indicates the events center could host about 25 events a year.

“Most of the events we’re talking about book months, even years in advance,” Gaudreau said. “From some of the very preliminary research we’ve done, you’re talking about 25-30 events a year. So those things would be put on the calendar, and then the Y would try to book around that.”

In a proposal to the city council, Ransom also suggested that the council to put together a building committee to oversee construction of the project.
